8C The Salt Lake Tribune Tuesday January 17 1989 Television Today Dial Spinners If you have been spinning the channel selector these past few days and found a strong color signal on Channel 14 and wondered what it was all about read on KXIV (which by the way I think is a nice play on Roman numerals) is an independent owned by American Television of Utah Inc a subsidiary of Skaggs Telecommunications Service with studios at 5181 Amelia Earhart Drive Don L Skaggs is president of the company KXIV was originally licensed as KATU then RGBS but all that has changed The new channel is a UHF signal transmitting at 933 kilowatts effective radiated power from Little Farnsworth Peak in the Oquirrhs just below Farnsworth Peak itself on which KSL and KSTU have their transmitters According to Mike Hemingway program director for the new station KXIV is an independent channel covering the Salt Lake Ogden and Provo areas “We’ve been asked if we’re a religious channel or a shopping channel The answer is none of the above We intend to be a traditional television station broadcasting movies children's programs situation comedies and perhaps some sports on an 18-hour schedule probably from 6 am to midnight” Hemingway said If all goes well and according to plan KXIV will debut m mid-February At present it is still in the equipment-testing stage broadcasting color bars and test patterns FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH: The networks still are scrambling to arrange their prime-time schedules by late January — to be in place for the February sweeps rating period This is the so-called “second season” (actually the second-half of the season) ABC is patching the cracks in its Saturday lineup by adding the Spenser spinoff A Man Called Hawk a one-hour dramatic series starring Avery Brooks in the role he created on Spenser: For Hire which fell by the wayside The network intends to team Hawk with the new version of Mission: Impossible and Murphy's Today’s Viewing Television

Schindler Television Editor Law hoping that something good will come of it At the moment it looks as if A Man Called Hawk will have to carry the other two ABC says Avery Brooks’ role will “take on an added dimension” by returning to his hometown of Washington D C after three years in Boston The Saturday programming change will take place Jan 28 on KTVX wth Mission Impossible leading off at 7 p m A Man Called Hawk premiering at 8 p m and Murphy’s Law at 9 pm CBS has a sense of humor A corporation would have to have a funny bone to order — as CBS has done — production on a “light-hearted adventure” called Tarzan in Manhattan (tentative title) based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs characters (Stop spinning Edgar maybe it’s just a joke) According to CBS someone named Joe Lara was selected from among 350 aspirants to become the 18th Tarzan in movie and television history since the storybook hero was first introduced to the reading public in 1914 Come to think of it any 1990s apeman scenario would have to wind up in Noo Yawk the jungle of jungles And where is CBS filming such a production? Why in Hawaii of course (I wonder if the network shouldn’t be billing this as a “light-headed adventure?”) Meanwhile the same network has changed the name of its bittersweet romantic comedy scheduled for Valentine’s Day Instead of Sugarbaby it is now entitled Babycakes but still based on the German-language film directed by Paul Schneider from a teleplay by Utahn Joyce Eliason Big Bird in Japan will be seen on KBYU Tuesday at 5 30 p m and repeated Saturday at 2 p m and Sunday at 1 p m And the basketball 3D Tour of Duty q (ID Nova q (ID General Biology (Tl MacNeil-Lehrer News-hour 35 Columbo 3Q Movie -
